RED BLUFF, Calif. – Early on Sunday morning Red Bluff police officers arrested a woman for possession of methamphetamine, and possession for sales.

At approximately 2:00 a.m. an officer reported seeing a 2002 Nissan Sentra swerving on Antelope Boulevard near Sale Lane.

After conducting a traffic stop the officer discovered that the driver, 29-year-old Amanda Rowley, was on Post Release Community Supervision (PCRS) for drug-related offenses.

When officers searched the Sentra that found what they called a “substantial” amount of methamphetamine, a small about of heroin, digital scales, and syringes.

Officers said before they searched Rowley she had to remove several bags of methamphetamine that she had been carrying.

A total of 93 grams of meth was found during the bust. That is the equivalent of 3.28 oz.

Amanda Rowley was booked into the Tehama County Jail on drug possession, paraphernalia possession, and possession of drugs for sale.

Her bail was set at $33,000.
